My First Iris this Year

Today I Welcomed My First Iris of the Season

I think it liked the rain. I don't normally see this iris until April, so it's quite early this year. I fed all the bulbs last night because more daffodils are blooming every day and many of the irises which haven't bloomed look smaller than they should be. The drought might be partly responsible, but they have lots of water now.

Only two days ago, I saw the buds looking as though they might be getting ready to bloom. Still, though, I was caught off guard when one actually did bloom today. It should soon be joined by other buds blooming. The plant in the pot behind the budding iris is a clary sage
